Under this rule, if a batsman faces a fast bowler, he will have to wear a helmet. On the other hand, if the wicketkeeper is keeping very close to the stump, then it will be necessary for him to wear a helmet, and if a fielder is fielding very close to the batsman, then it will be necessary for him to wear a helmet. Although batsmen or fielders have been adopting such protection in these positions or conditions, but now it has been made mandatory by the ICC.
